Thumbnails aren’t displayed for PNGs in xplorer² when Paint.NET default handler

Recommended Posts

This isn’t a problem with Paint.NET per se, but there is a slight problem with how it works with my file manager xplorer².


When Paint.NET is set as the default program to open PNG files, xplorer² doesn’t show thumbnails in the file list and instead shows the generic Paint.NET icon. Paint.NET is the default for GIF files and they show thumbnails, so the problem seems to be with PNGs. I temporarily changed the default handler for PNGs to Microsoft Paint and xplorer² was able to show thumbnails. Also, xplorer² has a little file viewer which is able to extract and show a preview of the image.


Does anyone have any ideas?
